Year of Wellbeing festival marks Mental Health Awareness Week

A festival celebrating Coventry and Warwickshire’s Year of Wellbeing will be taking place in Broadgate, Coventry on 18 May.

The free one-day festival, running from 10:00 – 15:00, will connect the public to groups and organisations that promote good mental health and wellbeing, and aims to break down the stigma around seeking help.

There will be over 30 stalls from local groups and services, including: the Samaritans; Arty-Folks; Papyrus; Positive Youth Foundation; local NHS health services; and many more. There will also be activities such as mindfulness, sport, arts, and the opportunity to write on the ‘gratitude wall’.

No tickets or bookings are required; everyone is welcome to join us in celebrating the Year of Wellbeing.

Liz Gaulton, Director of Public Health and Wellbeing for Coventry, said: "Coventry and Warwickshire’s Year of Wellbeing is here to inspire and empower people to change lives, improving their wellbeing and the wellbeing of people around them.

“We hope the stalls and activities at this festival will be fun and thought-provoking, and will provide another opportunity during our Year for people to do just that."
